PSE implements the strategy of sustainable development, which supports the achievement of business objectives and contributes to the achievement of the UN’s ambitious Sustainable Development Goals, including Goal No 13 for climate-related measures.
PSE’s activities contribute to the stable operation of the power system in Poland, and thus to some extent we influence the volume of greenhouse gas emissions. Like any organisation, our company also affects the climate through greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the combustion of fuels and the use of electricity or heat. In order to measure the impact of PSE’s activities on climate, we continue calculating our carbon footprint in line with our assumption, and we have included it as a permanent feature of the Impact Report. Carbon footprint is becoming one of the indicators taken into account in assessing the activities of our organisation and used in managing our company.
PSE carbon footprint calculations have been performed in accordance with the international GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard. Our base year – i.e. the year for which we have calculated greenhouse gas emissions, against which we will compare emissions in the coming years – is 2017.
